A meeting on March 21th 2016 was held to review the upgrading of an operational model, TRAMS, at Guangdong Meteorological Service. The review committee included researchers in the field and directors in the related divisions, headed by Deputy Director Liang Jianyin.
Deputy Director of the key lab Chen Zitong gave a work and technical report about the updated version of TRAMS. The report elaborated on the latest technologies that applied to the model, including implicit solution coupled with dynamic process in semi- implicit time difference scheme, 3D hydrostatic reference atmosphere, improved cumulus parameterization scheme for the high resolution model. Batch tests, during the typhoon seasons in 2013 and 2015, showed that the model runs stably, the forecast skill improved distinctly, and the running time could satisfy the operational demand.
By fully understanding the report and related materials, the elaborate work and obvious effect of updated version has been highly approved by the experts, meanwhile some valuable comments were given for further development. Finally, after intense discussion and evaluation, the committee all agreed on the operational upgrading of TRAMS V2.0.
